Today we start closing things up from our month long home away from home. Tomorrow we pack the car. Tuesday and Wednesday are travel. Thursday I do all the things to catch up from the last month. And Friday is pre-op with surgery 11/6.
I don't know how long he'll be in the hospital, or how much effort recovery will take. I know his lung will be deflated, the nodule removed, stapled shut, then reinflated. I don't know if I'll be needed or need to step aside for recovery. As of right now I can visit him from noon to 8 every day. I'm thankful I have new glasses that show me to drive after dark. The next oncology appt is 11/23, one year after his first hospitalization -- wow!!! At that post-op appointment, pathology will be discussed, radiation and chemo will be scheduled with a Radiology team. We don't know how long, what drugs, no details yet. And, you all probably know I'm a planner. I need to know all the what-ifs. But ....
It is a reminder for me to live today. To love today. Be thankful for the sun, sand and ocean. Be thankful we were blessed by my relatives. Be thankful for the three times I was able to be in person with my mom this month. Be thankful we are healthy feeling.
And, above all, we are thankful for our Lord and Savior ....
Matthew 5:16 KJV: Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
Enjoy the photos of the glorious sunset. Tom asked me how many photos and videos do you need? I said every day. His mercies are new every day. And I want to capture that memory to remind me visually.
